These are some of the questions that will be explored at a community event being held in Vancouver on Sunday, November 27, 2011 at 7:00pm. This free event is co-hosted by the Public Health Association of British Columbia, BC Mental Health & Addiction Services, and the Canadian Mental Health Association.
We have been involved in the planning of this event and are thrilled to let you know that some exciting speakers will be participating and sharing their perspectives on mental wellbeing. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Gabor Mate, a local physician and best-settling author, and Dr. John Raeburn, Adjunct Professor at the Auckland University of Technology. Also on the agenda will be comedian Melanie Rose, alumni member of “Stand up For Mental Health.” Melanie will be reflecting on the role of humour and performance in supporting mental wellbeing. She will be sharing a few laughs as well!
How do you improve and maintain your mental wellbeing? Do you want to share your tips and approaches? Then come and join in on the conversation! This event is open to all, and will provide the opportunity to talk about mental wellbeing and to share ideas and thoughts on how mental health is a resource for everyday living.
So join us on November 27th to explore various approaches and perspectives for promoting mental wellbeing, hear from mental health experts and engaged members of the public, and have a few laughs while you're at it!
